So I was very grateful to receive money from my family for my birthday this year, with this money and my savings I was able to finally purchase an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil! I've wanted to get these since I first saw them released and did some research to see how well it works for creating artwork. After checking out all the information I could find, I came to the conclusion that this would be a cheaper and more versatile option for me over the Wacom Cintiq, a drawing tablet that I've been lusting over for as long as I knew about Wacom as a company! I'm now three months into my iPad Pro art journey and I don't think I will go back to my old graphics tablet to draw ever again! My two favourite art apps are Procreate, an amazing art app that's incredibly versatile; and AstroPad, an app that turns the iPad into a graphics tablet so you can use it with your computer programs like Adobe Photoshop! Drawing in Procreate is so fluid and feels so natural that it makes Photoshop feel clunky to me! Although it costs about £4.49 to purchase, I have never regretted doing so as this app has helped me so much to develop as an artist and illustrator.
So do you fancy seeing some of the pieces I've made with my new tools? You've probably already seen them if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, but I'm actually very proud of how these have come out, so I hope you like them!

I've also uploaded the sketching and painting process of "SEER" to my YouTube channel so be sure to watch that too!
I hope you like the work I'm creating now! I feel like I can be more experimental now so I'm having a lot of fun with it!
